GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Meijer’s Michigan stores will accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for online orders, the company announced Wednesday (April 20). The assistance includes “Meijer Pickup” and home delivery services.

Michigan shoppers will be allowed to pay for online orders using an Electronic Benefits Transfer card.

“We’re excited to accept SNAP benefits across our Meijer Pickup and Delivery shopping experiences,” Derek Steele, vice president of customer strategy for Meijer, said in a statement. “We believe all customers should have access to personalized, convenient, digital shopping services and understand the added benefit this new payment capability provides.”

Meijer also has plans to expand the SNAP benefits for use by customers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky soon.

“Providing SNAP recipient with access to Meijer Pickup and Delivery will make shopping for affordable, fresh groceries and essentials a little easier for parents and families across the Midwest,” Steele said. “We hope the new capability brings convenience and access to all our customers when ordering groceries online.”
